The time is right for the rollout of my book Presidential Puppetry after a lengthy “soft launch” tailored to its unique content.
Nov. 7 is the formal publication date after I previewed the themes in a nearly hour-long interview in September on CBS-affiliate WWL AM/FM in New Orleans.
This is two days after I deliver a talk at the Washington Monument on the Mall as part of the Million Mask March that is being coordinated in more than 450 locales worldwide. The march is a global protest against such injustices as government surveillance, war, greed, needless “austerity” measures, political corruption, and government secrecy.
These are precisely the challenges portrayed in Puppetry, along with suggested ways for effective reform.
Presidential Puppetry: Obama, Romney and Their Masters is published this fall in a hardcover edition. The book includes the government shutdown, the settlement of the Syria chemical weapons crisis, and the president’s false proclamation in August that no domestic spying program exists.
Puppetry is the first comprehensive book about the Obama Administration to include its second-term. Unfolding as a Washington, DC-based mystery story, it leads the reader step-by-step to a deeper understanding of the fall 2013 political controversies on a range of issues, including austerity, budgets, national security, privacy, and press freedom.
